I have been working in the classroom at #PrepareTheWay every morning for the past month. I’m spending my time organizing materials, keeping the room ready to show to potential #Preschool families, and looking through resources as I plan for our first school year.
One of the things I’m most excited about right now is a connection I made with one of the marysville kindergarten teachers. My goal is to be in frequent communication with many local kindergarten teachers in an effort to learn what their expectations are as our Pre-K students leave our program and enter theirs. My hope is to one day see a training program in Marysville where local Pre-K teachers and Kindergarten teachers get together once or twice a year to share ideas on how we can work together as partners to ensure success in our kids Early Childhood years.
We’re already thinking about our fundraiser yard sale that will be on May 16th and 17th. I know it’s a little early to be mentioning it, but I want you to know that it’s coming as you start thinking about spring cleaning. Rather than taking your unwanted items to Goodwill, we would be happy take your stuff! 🙂
We’ll be raising money for a new playground. I am so excited about some of our ideas for our space. It’s not a big space, so we have to get creative. Our goal is to create an I outdoor learning space where we can partner fun learning experiences with several of AC3’s ministries. For example: we will have raised garden boxes for the kids to grow food in. We will discuss the process of planting, growing and harvesting. During this process the kids will learn about First Fruits (AC3’s farm). We will have the opportunity to take field trips to the farm as well. We also plan to have a water pump for the kids to use, partly because it’s just really fun to play with water. But they will also learn about other cultures and how a lot of people around the world don’t have running water like we do. This gives us the opportunity to teach the kids about the E-3 ministry in Malawi. We have many other things planned for our outdoor space too. We’ll post some pictures as soon as we start working on it.
So that’s what has been going on at Prepare The Way over the last month. Please tell your friends about us, LIKE our Facebook page and pray for God’s hand in our enrollment process.
Have a great day!!
